We had the pleasure of making superhero capes for kids , courtesy of FamilyFun magazine.  The capes our children made will go to children in shelters.  This idea is in the Jan/Dec issue of FamilyFun Magazine and features Craft Hope and Enchanted Makeovers.  Craft Hope is an organization that coordinates people who craft with charity projects and Enchanted Makeovers is an organization that does makeovers for shelters by making them feel more like a home.  What amazing organizations!

I have to admit, when this arrived in the mail, I thought we were doomed!  LOL  It looked like a daunting task….until I watched the THE VIDEO.  Ooohhhhhh…..that looks doable!  Whew!!  (The materials you need are mentioned in the video).

Aside from feeling grateful for this opportunity, we were really excited to show everyone just how capable children are.  Staying true to our philosophies here at Play at Home Mom LLC, we wanted to intervene as little as possible in the process.

Party time!

It was a cold, rainy day so a hot chocolate bar was an integral part of our superhero cape making party.

There were also lots and lots of snacks!

      We cut out emblems printed from internet….then we ironed the fabric onto heat bonding paper…..then we traced the emblem onto the back of the heat bonding paper….cut out the emblem…..removed the paper….and ironed it onto the cape.

    The video doesn’t mention anything about the superhero emblems. How is that done? It looks essential to making the cape look fun for kids. Do you know of where you can get iron-ons like that?

      We had paper templates that we traces onto the back of the bonding paper….then cut them out. Does that make sense? You can print emblems from the internet….just google images.
